Stretching canvas imparts considerable stresses on stretcher bars, causing them to bow inwards. Bracing is used to hold the stretcher bars apart and ensure that the stretcher bars remain parallel.
Bracing: Single bracing is recommended on all frames where one side of the frame exceeds 30" (760 mm).
Cross bracing should be used where two sides exceed 30"
Double bracing is available for all frames that exceed 60" (1500 mm).
Double cross bracing
Custom sizes can be made for any requirement up to 4800 mm.
Please note, all sizes are in inches.
